Increase Adjunct Pay through Professional Development
TILT offers three, self-paced trainings for adjunct faculty designed to provide FHSU faculty with skills in technology and online teaching in an immediately applicable and customizable format.
About the Courses
Each course is offered once during the fall semester and once during the spring semester. Each course runs six weeks each and requires department chair approval. No textbook is required; all materials are posted to Blackboard where the adjunct instructor uses the student side to navigate the course.
